Victoria’s Secret Ditches ‘Angels’ for Gay Soccer Star

Victoria’s Secret is losing its sex appeal to “evolve” with the woke times, and has dismissed the brand’s fleet of heavenly supermodels to embrace “gender equity advocates.”

To replace the likes of Heide Klum, Gisele Bundchen, and Adriana Lima, the lingerie retailer has tapped a slew of “women famous for their achievements and not their proportions.” The new “VS Collective” campaign will feature U.S. women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe, who said the message that the Angels sent was “really harmful.” 

“As a gay woman,” Rapinoe remarked, “I think a lot about what we think is sexy, and we are afforded the ability to do that, because I don’t have to wear the traditional sexy thing to be sexy and I don’t think the traditional thing is sexy when it comes to my partner or people I’ve dated.”

She also noted that the company’s previous way of marketing lingerie was, “patriarchal, sexist, viewing not just what it meant to be sexy but what the clothes were trying to accomplish through a male lens and through what men desired. And it was very much marketed toward younger women.” 

In addition to Rapinoe, the brand has hired “Eileen Gu, a 17-year-old Chinese American freestyle skier and soon-to-be Olympian; the 29-year-old biracial model and inclusivity advocate Paloma Essler, who was the rare size 14 woman on the cover of Vogue; and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, a 38-year-old Indian actor and tech investor.”

In 2019, former CEO Leslie Wexner said the Angel’s era was over. “Fashion is a business of change. We must evolve and change to grow. With that in mind, we have decided to rethink the traditional Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show,” he announced.  

Current CEO Martin Waters claims that “Right now, I don’t see [the Angels] as being culturally relevant.” He’s been waiting to execute them since before he got the job title. “I’ve known that we needed to change this brand for a long time, we just haven’t had the control of the company to be able to do it.”

HA, HA,HA, HA, I guess the old “Sex Sells” is dead and you must read their long line resumes of BS to get your woody. NO thank You! On one hand you are to treat them all as professionals where that’s fine, Then they want to be women, have you to chase them. Then you look at them cross eyed and your accused of Sexual Harassment. This is total confusion and men are going MGTOW and refusing to date or marry. I got so fed up with the dating crap and male put downs 30 years ago I gave up and have enjoyed my single life. As far as I could tell I would just be a money generator to keep her in “Stuff” while I might see the furry thing once in a while and a chance she would cheat on me anyway.
I could care less about how she looks to her “partners” or any one else. So why does she think she is a spokes “person” for the company? The company will die a quick death unless gays, trans, and safe space restroom confused buy their product. WHAT A JOKE! PC is killing this country.

This company was already failing before the COVID, this will only help. I think the store in our mall won’t be reopening. If it does I know my friends and I won’t be shopping there. Let the perverts shop there. This is why I no longer follow sports and won’t be watching the Olympics. They have gone woke…..

Let the Rapinoes’ of the world do what they want, wear what they want, say what they want. They have a right to do so. They apparently don’t think I have a right to the way I think and the choices I want to make. Why do we have to give up our preferences to match this Woke ideology? Victoria Secret has lost my patronage.

Looks like Victoria’s Secret went the way of Harley Davidson when they sold themselves to AMF.

A lesbian standing in for normal women. And men and women are supposed to be listening to a lesbian with a big mouth who doesn’t want our flag around her. Well, that is really sexy. Victoria’s Secret doesn’t understand homosexuals and lesbians aren’t into the same sexual activities normals are, so what are they going to sell in the stores. Fake penises or toys instead of romantic normal sexual activity. Well, what is Victoria’s Secret answer to my question. And homosexuals including lesbians ae only 4.5% of our population so why use them when you have millions of normals to sell to normals.

I guess they will be advertising a free roll of duct tape with every pair of panties so the transvestites can tape their junk up.

“Back in the days of the wild west when men were men and women were glad of it!”, followed by, “Faint heart ne’er won fair lady.” regardless of microphones, media and products, those phrases still resonate today. The ones who know it, silently smile. The rest, … take a valium.
